Loreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation review

I love a Loreal foundation, true match, pro matte- they're all amazing. So of course when I saw Nude Magique Cushion was released in America a few months back I just couldn't wait for it to come to the UK. I also found this really appealing as it was such a different concept, a foundation cushion? I just had to see how this thing worked out.

It comes in this cute purple compact, when you open it up it has a mirror in the lid (hurrah!) and a puff to apply the product. You can then lift this up to reveal the cushion. Now, I don't know what I was expecting from the cushion because I was really surprised at just how squishy it was. It's like a sponge and when I touched it it squelched, I found something strangely satisfying about that. I did try to apply the foundation with the puff but this isn't my favourite way, it maybe good if you wanted to touch up in the day but personally I've just been going in with a buffing brush.

The coverage isn't meant to be full coverage and this definitely isn't, I find I prefer it best when it is built up a little so I've been applying 2 or 3 coats to my skin but its still a nice sheer coverage and leaves my freckles visible. It evens out my skin tone and which is perfect for the summer as I don't always wants to look like I have a face full of make up. The wear on this isn't the longest and I do find I look a little oily after a couple of hours so if you have oily skin I would definitely make sure you have that powder in your handbag!

I enjoyed testing this out as its such a unique concept and I'll keep in on hand for 'no make up' make up days but on the whole this isn't my favourite Loreal foundation. I also think at £15 its pretty pricey for a drugstore foundation, luckily I got it on offer for a tenner and I have to say I wouldn't spend more on it than that. I think if you have skin that is more on the normal to dry side then it may work for you better so if you can get it in part of a deal then give it a whirl.

I'd love to know your thoughts on this foundation and if you've got any application tips then please leave me a comment.
